Our latest betting tips for the Brazilian Serie A
Brazilian football league is probably one of the hardest to predict, but we're here to help you out. So, check some of our favourite predictions for the upcoming Serie A round:
- Athletico Paranaense vs Bahia: Athletico Paranaense to Win @ 4/5
- Fortaleza vs Flamengo: Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 3/4
- Internacional vs Chapecoense: Internacional to Win @ 8/15
Keep in mind that odds are subject to change at any time.
Athletico Paranaense vs Bahia
Prediction: Athletico Paranaense to Win
Athletico Paranaense is currently eighth in the league, while Bahia is only above Chapecoense in the standings. So, it's clear that the home team is the favourite in this game, especially after the team got into the Copa Sudamericana final, which boosted their confidence for sure. In addition to this, the home team won in four of the last five h2h duels between these two teams, so our prediction is for Athletico to win here.
Fortaleza vs Flamengo
Prediction: Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between Fortaleza and Flamengo and we expect the same thing to happen in their next match. Furthermore, we've seen both teams score in 46% of matches played by the home team in the league this season, while the same is true 48% of Flamengo matches in Serie A so far.
Internacional vs Chapecoense
Prediction: Internacional to Win
Although Chapecoense surprisingly avoided defeat against Atletico Mineiro in the last round, they are still the worst team in the standings and already have one foot in Serie B. Meanwhile, Internacional improved their form recently to shoot up the standings, so we expect them to take this opportunity to improve their position further. With that in mind, our prediction is for Internacional to win the game.
Who will win the Serie A? Outright betting tips
At the time of writing this Atletico Mineiro is sitting at the top of the table with the biggest positive goal difference. Meanwhile, last season's triumphant – Flamengo are at 3rd place but still, they remain the bookies' favorites to win the title. The odds for them are at 5/6 even though they are already tailing. This makes Atletico Mineiro at 23/20 a very worthy pick as they are already on top of the table and are looking quite solid – plus they brought Diego Costa to pair him up with Hulk up front. At this rate, we would see them snatch the title, but it's for sure that Flamengo would not let it happen without a fight.
Other teams don't really have a lot to hope for since Atletico Mineiro and Flamengo are looking like the two teams that will be at the top come the end of the season. However, if you believe in some of the other teams, you can bet on them as well. For example, the odds on Palmeiras winning the title are at 7/1, on RB Bragantino at 40/1, on Fortaleza at 50/1, and so on.
